Hi Dave, of the New System panel, at http://www.archive.org/contribute.php

Create and upload a new movie, audio recording, live concert recording, or book.
See your contribution tasks that are not yet completed.
See your history of contribution tasks that are done.


You mean you're worried that the last 2 links might go away or be phased out? I think they were added to be part of the new system resources for users, so we probably don't have to worry. Since I can only vaguely remember my old *identifiers* to be able to do stuff, I'd need something like that anyway!

Hey Diana - not exactly.

Basically, my concern is that after you create an upload folder, if you navigate away from the page with the "click here when done", it's difficult to find that link again - a very important link! I know where it is now, but you need to know:

a) to click on the Contribution Center
b) to use the new system rather than the old
c) to click 'tasks that are not yet completed'
d) to click 'checkout' even though that's not what you want to do
e) then, and only then, to click to check the recording in.

SO - ideally it'd be nice if the "tasks that are not yet completed" were shown on the "New System" box of the Contribution Center, and perhaps the "checkout" link could be disambiguated a bit so users have an easier time getting back to the checkin page.

Ah, I see, yeah in other collections I think that's been a confusing aspect too! I'll add it to the feature req list about making user's new-system creation/item resources more clear. (I assume it'll get somewhat more clear by default,once the distracting old-system stuff is taken away post-transition.)

Or you can open your FTP client again and download the URL from there - the file is included in the show folder.

Or, just substitute "checkin" in the item URL - as in

http://www.archive.org/checkin/identifier

Just some tips. I agree with what you're sayin.
